Noah and the Great Flood
As the years passed, people began to fill the Earth. But when God saw that man’s wickedness covered the Earth, and that every imagination of his heart was only evil continually, it grieved the Lord.
And the Lord said, “I will destroy mankind, which I created, from the face of the Earth.”
But the Lord looked on Noah with favor. Noah, a righteous man, perfect in his generations, walked with God.
So God said to Noah, “The end of all mankind is coming. Because people have filled the Earth with violence, I will destroy them along with the Earth.
Make yourself an ark of wood. Build rooms in it and cover it with tar, inside and out. Build the boat 450 feet long, seventy-five feet wide, and 45 feet high, but make only one door.
You, your wife, your three sons and their wives must go into the ark. Bring also a male and female of every animal into the ark, to keep them alive with you.
Two of every sort will come to you, but you must take by sevens all the animals which I have declared holy.”
